Tomorrow: Holy Ghost! @ Grog Shop

I have a particular affinity for bands with an exclamation mark in their name.  Especially a worthy band like Holy Ghost! I've already featured two of their videos on my Video Tuesday series, and they're finally coming to the Grog Shop Tomorrow ($12~$14 @ 10pm)!  I checked out the opener, Jessica 6, and they'll be worth getting there early (relatively speaking), being a band boasting former members of Hercules & Love Affair and scoring a cameo from Antony (from Antony & the Johnsons).  Oh, did I mention Holy Ghost! scored one from Michael McDonald.  Seriously…

Holy Ghost! – “Some Children” (Feat. Michael McDonald) Video - Stereogum

DFA and Adult Swim teamed up to create a video for Holy Ghost!’s “Some Children,” with a directorial credit going to lilfuchs. This is the HG! song with a cameo from Michael McDonald! (Stereogum’s style guide mandates that an exclamation point be used after every instance of both Holy Ghost! and Michael McDonald!, for reasons that are self-evident.) The clip is playful, animated, and vibrant in a way that recalls Ed Banger art director So Me’s work with Kanye and Justice, and to those points, ends appropriately with the hoodied hipster creation scene depicted above.

I think these guys are going to be a lot of fun...

"NYC dance outfit Jessica 6 (whose lineup includes ex-Hercules and Love Affair members) teamed up with fellow H&LA alum Antony Hegarty for a track called "Prisoner of Love" on Jessica 6's debut album See the Light.

Now, Antony co-stars in the video, which was directed by Marco Ovando and styled by Lady Gaga collaborator Nicola Formichetti."
